French doors and bi-fold doors are also frequently used in Hamptons homes. They give that opportunity to blend indoor and outdoor living while remaining elegant and ensuring plenty of natural light regardless of the season.

Floor-to-ceiling windows are also common in Hamptons homes, again because they blur the line between what’s indoors and what’s outside.

You’ll frequently see Hamptons homes without any window coverings at all, but if they do have coverings they might be naturally inspired woven shades or floor-to-ceiling draperies that can be pushed to the side for the flow of natural light.

Add an armchair into your room that looks out an amazing window.
What’s so important with windows in a Hamptons home is that nothing, from the view to the light, is obstructed or blocked in any way if possible.

Windows are a source of admission for both light and air. Why not make them an architectural feature of your home. Blend the relationship between the interiors and exteriors. Make your windows stand out in your home and feel like you are at one with the outdoors while you are in!
